  • This is effective anti-Jewish propaganda. Rick Steves is a likable, believable guy, so his lies go unchallenged by his ignorant audience, and he is supported by those who know the truth but are motivated by hatred.

  • “The best of Israel” video 5 years ago was very biased. You never showed the suffering of the Palestinians. You can see that from the reaction from the amount of dislikes. You turned off the comment section, because you must be ashamed, as you should be!

  • I never noticed before, but Rick's right shoulder is lower than his left. I checked some of his other travel vids that I've seen countless times and its the same, but its really pronounced on this video.

  • Having read the comments below I'm even more convinced that Rick Steves is an essential voice – though it takes a lot to chip away at embedded prejudices and traditional misinformation.

  • Israel was established in May 1948 hours after the end of the British Mandate for Palestine expired. Israel was recognized by the US under President Harry Truman 12 minutes later. You mention 1946 and 1947 and I have no idea what you are talking about. You mention borders being internationally recognized? What borders? The green line was an armistice line drawn in green ink on a map in the 1949 armistice talks. It was never a border with border crossings. You call Palestinians suicide bombers as freedom fighters? When a suicide bomber attacked the Dolphinarium dance hall during the 2nd Intifada he killed mostly 14 15, and 16 year old girls who were there to dance. What exactly did that do to promote any Palestinian objective? If you can think of just one, please tell me what that would be.

  • If you would like to explore the world of the Hebrew and Arabic grammarians from the time when both world lived side by side in al Andaluz you should go to Suzzalo Library and look where the books on Hebrew grammar are kept and you might find two books by Yonah ibn al walid on Hebrew grammar called Shorashim (roots) and another book that you will find referenced in the Encyclopedia Judaica. They are both in Arabic and that was the language of over half of the Jewish world of that time. I haven"t seen these books for over 40 years, but I doubt anyone has ever used them. If I am wrong, and I hope I am, than I extend my sincere apology to whoever has made me a lier.

  • I wanted to comment "Rick Steves for Sec. of State." But then I saw all the hateful comments that are getting many thumbs up just because they agree with whatever preconceived ideas the viewers had. But I decided to comment anyway because a country that put freedom of expression at the very top of their bill of rights deserves someone interested in listening and reiterating perspectives. It's true he has formed an opinion, and this is forbidden in American politics, but I challenge anyone to find someone as interested in sitting down and having dinner with someone who has a different perspective.
